Panthers sale sparks buzz in political, business circles

By Steve Reed, Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The stunning news of the rare opportunity to purchase an NFL team has quickly garnered the attention of sports figures, business investors and politicians alike. Amid reports of sexual and racial remarks made by Carolina Panthers owner and founder Jerry Richardson in the workplace, he has unexpectedly announced that he is selling the NFL franchise after this season ends. It was a bombshell that rocked the Carolinas, and generated shockwaves inside and out of the organization. The team Monday promoted Tina Becker as COO and gave her full control of the day-to-day operations. Becker said in a release that “these have been some of the most difficult days of my 19 years with the Panthers.” She added that her immediate focus will be on corporate side of the organization, “while addressing the real concerns that have been raised in recent days.” Richardson, meanwhile, stepped away from daily responsibilities to focus on the sale of the team — which will come with a multi-billion dollar price tag. That’s what is known, but Richardson’s decision to walk away after nearly 25 years as owner has left more questions than answers about the franchise’s future — most notably, who will buy it and will they keep the team in Charlotte. Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles said she is committed to working to keep the team in Charlotte. “The City of Charlotte values its long-running relationship with the Panthers after more than 22 seasons of NFL football,” Lyles said in a statement to The Associated Press. “The Panthers are part of Charlotte’s fabric. We’ve celebrated victories and anguished over defeats. We understand transitions are inevitable, and we look forward to working with current and future ownership.” The Panthers are tethered to Charlotte through the 2018 season because of an agreement on an $87.5 stadium renovation between the city and the team in 2013. That renovation is nearly complete. But a buyer could potentially purchase the team and move it in 2019. Former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, who was mayor of Charlotte when the Panthers settled into their new stadium, has seen both sides. He also was the mayor when the Hornets left town. He said another question might be about Bank of America stadium. “Will (the new owners) ask for government subsidy to continue to improve the stadium, or, in fact, even build a new stadium, like what’s happened in Atlanta and Dallas?” McCrory said. “That would be a tall order.” He said it will be a business decision— and the highest bidder will get the team, to possibly do with it as they chose. “Unless the NFL steps in and says, ’No, you need to have a local ownership group,’” he said, “which I’d encourage them to do.” Panthers coach Ron Rivera was “a little taken aback” when Richardson informed him Sunday night of his decision to sell the team. But he too believes the Panthers should remain in Charlotte. “This organization has been a source of pride and goodwill and I would like to it continue,” Rivera said Monday. “This is a great community with a very supportive fan base that has been out there for us. They have been here for me and this football team and I hope that somehow it is able to stay here.” The chance to purchase an NFL team has potential suitors coming out of the woodwork. Rapper and actor Diddy indicated his interest in purchasing the Panthers on Twitter moments after Richardson’s announcement. Two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry, a Charlotte native, chimed in with “I want in!” NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has also expressed interest. Other businessmen with Charlotte connections could show interest as well. Speedway Motorsports chairman Bruton Smith and his son, CEO Marcus Smith, have previously expressed interest in purchasing the Panthers should the opportunity arise. And the Panthers are loaded with minority owners including real estate magnate “Smoky” Bissell, Family Dollar founder Leon Levine and members of the Belk family. Developer Johnny Harris, who was instrumental in luring the Wells Fargo Championship — and later the PGA Championship — to Charlotte, could also decide to increase his ownership stake in the team. Let’s not forget Michael Jordan. The six-time NBA champion owns the Hornets. However, Jordan’s interest level is unknown and his representative Estee Portnoy said she had no comment on the Panthers sale. More names will surely emerge over the next several weeks, but they need to be ready to write a big check. Forbes Magazine recently estimated the Panthers worth at $2.3 billion. And those numbers could be low. Forbes estimated the Buffalo Bills at a net worth of $935 million in 2013, but the team wound up selling in 2014 for $1.4 billion — nearly 50 percent higher than the estimate — according to magazine’s website. Before any sale can be finalized, it will need the approval of 24 of 32 NFL owners. The Panthers have a lot to offer potential suitors: — They are on the cusp of reaching the playoffs for the fourth time in five seasons. — They have sold out 225 of their 227 home games in team history, including 157 straight. — They feature several recognizable stars including 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton and 2013 Defensive Player of the Year Luke Kuechly. Panthers tight end Ed Dickson said fans don’t deserve to have a team ripped out from underneath them. “It’s growing, it’s definitely been growing,” Dickson said of the fan base. “We are striving to build something that Dallas has, and Pittsburgh has. We don’t have that much history here. But one of the reasons I came here was to be a part of something special. When we do get to the top of the mountain and win a Super Bowl — then we have something to celebrate here” in the Carolinas. At least in 2017 and 2018, after that, it’s unclear where the party would be. ___ AP Writer Skip Foreman contributed to this report......»»

Elisse Joson talks about ‘being real,’ her pet peeves and biggest crush

Reality TV viewers were appropriately fascinated by actress Elisse Joson when her romantic woes were dramatically played out like episodes in a teleserye in the "Lucky 7" edition of "Pinoy Big Brother" last year. It didn't hurt that the damsel in distress was as lovely as she was vulnerable. These days, Elisse is romantically linked to fellow "The Good Son" cast member McCoy de Leon, but the pretty 21-year-old actress also wants to be taken seriously for her acting chops. Our quick Q&A with Elisse: Has it always been your childhood dream to be an actress? Ever since I was a child, my mom kept pushing me to take acting workshops, because I've always been very shy.

Bayern flying on Heynckes' return; Dortmund home record over

em>By Ciaran Fahey, Associated Press /em> BERLIN (AP) — Jupp Heynckes' fourth stint at Bayern Munich began with a rout then Leipzig ended Borussia Dortmund's club-record 41-game unbeaten run at home in the Bundesliga on Saturday. Leipzig's 3-2 win was league-leader Dortmund's first Bundesliga defeat at the Westfalenstadion since April 4, 2015, a 1-0 defeat to Bayern. Heynckes cut the gap at the top to two points with his side's 5-0 rout of Freiburg in Munich. Heynckes got off to a perfect start with an own-goal from Julian Schuster, a diving header from Kingsley Coman, and second-half goals from Thiago Alcantara, Robert Lewandowski and Joshua Kimmich. The margin of victory also helped restore some of the swagger missing after Bayern's lackluster start to the season. The 72-year-old Heynckes — who won the Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup treble in his previous stint with Bayern before retiring in 2013 — was coaxed into returning after Carlo Ancelotti was fired. Also, Schalke won at Hertha Berlin 2-0 and Eintracht Frankfurt scored late to beat Hannover 2-1. Augsburg also struck late to salvage a 2-2 draw at Hoffenheim, and Mainz defeated Hamburger SV 3-2. strong>JUPP'S RETURN /strong> Even opponents were happy to see Heynckes return after almost 4 1/2 years out of the game. Freiburg coach Christian Streich sought him out and gave Heynckes a warm embrace before they walked out to the field. Heynckes brushed off any concerns the game might have moved on in his absence by insisting 'Football has not been reinvented,' and he stuck with what he knew by putting offseason arrivals Niklas Suele, James Rodriguez, Sebastian Rudy and record signing Corentin Tolisso in the reserves. His team took an eighth-minute lead through Schuster's own-goal under pressure from Thomas Mueller. Coman made it 2-0 with a diving header. Bayern let a two-goal lead slip in its previous two league games, but Thiago allayed any fears of it happening again when he fired in the third after an hour. Lewandowski claimed his ninth of the season, and Kimmich provided the garnish by scoring with his heel in injury time. 'It was unbelievably important to have a good start,' said Heynckes, who has started with a win in each of his four terms in charge. strong>RECORD BROKEN /strong> Dortmund's unbeaten run at home was the league's fifth longest since its formation in 1963. The side didn't have long to wait before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stayed cool to score inside the far post in the fourth minute. Marcel Sabitzer answered minutes later with a header from close range, and Dortmund's defense was at fault again when Bruma eluded Jeremy Toljan to set up Yussuf Poulsen. It got worse for Dortmund after the break when Sokratis was sent off for bringing down Jean-Kevin Augustin, who dusted himself off to score the ensuing penalty. Leipzig's Stefan Ilsanker was sent off minutes later with two yellow cards in quick succession, both for fouls. Aubameyang's second, a penalty, set up a frenetic finale, but Andrey Yarmolenko missed the best chance to equalize. strong>HERTHA PROTEST /strong> Hertha Berlin nodded to social struggles in the United States by kneeling before its home game. The starting lineup all linked arms and took a knee on the field, while coaching staff, officials and substitutes took a knee off it. On Twitter, the Bundesliga club said 'Hertha BSC stands for tolerance and responsibility! For a tolerant Berlin and an open-minded world, now and forevermore!' The side's hopes took a blow before the break when Genki Haraguchi was sent off with a direct red card for a dangerous challenge on Schalke forward Guido Burgstaller. The Japan midfielder apologized straight away. Hertha didn't have a shot at goal in the first half. Leon Goretzka fired Schalke ahead from the penalty spot early in the second, and Burgstaller wrapped it with just over 10 minutes remaining. .....»»

Red Cubs sniffing top seed as Mapua, CSB-LSGH get tripped

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> Mapua 13-4 br /> San Beda 12-5 br /> CSB-LSGH 11-6 br /> Letran 10-7 br /> San Sebastian 10-7 br /> Arellano 7-10 br /> LPU 7-9 br /> Perpetual 6-10 br /> JRU 6-11 br /> EAC 2-15 For a while there, it looked like San Beda High School was losing its touch in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. That has all been put to rest as here come the Red Cubs, once again knocking on the door of the top spot after besting archrival Colegio de San Juan de Letran, 63-60, on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Luke Sese top-scored with 13 points, but it was total team effort which fueled San Beda’s ascent to 12-5. Evan Nelle and Ain Obenza were the ones who showed the way in the final frame and had all the answers for the Squires’ charges. The former ended with seven points, five rebounds, and five assists while the latter finished with five markers under his belt. The boys from Taytay started the second round by dropping three games in a row which, in turn, dropped them to as low as fourth-place. With their fifth consecutive victory, however, this one completing an elimination round sweep of their archrivals, they have strengthened their stranglehold on solo second. More than that, they also stand within striking distance of league-leading Mapua University. The Red Robins yet again left a window open for the top spot they’re currently occupying after being at the wrong end of an upset by San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 80-81. Alex Desoyo caught fire in the final frame by scoring 14 of his 25 points to front the Staglets’ comeback from as much as 19 points behind. Baste was down by 16 at the half before flipping the switch and outscoring their opponents, 53-36, in the last two quarters. With the big-time comeback, they entangle themselves for the fourth spot with also 10-7 Letran. San Sebastian ends the eliminations against dangerous University of Perpetual Help (6-10) while the Squires match up with struggling College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills (11-6) On the other hand, now 13-4 Mapua needs to take care of business against already eliminated Arellano High School to avoid any complications regarding the top-seed. Last Thursday, the Junior Blazers were the victims of the biggest upset of the season, downed by lowly Emilio Aguinaldo High School, 77-81. Lester Castillo and Maui Cruz fired 29 and 28 points, respectively, to lift the Brigadiers to only their second win in 17 games. Conversely, the upset was CSB-LSGH’s fourth loss in the last five games. Once the frontrunners in the tournament, they now find themselves at third-place at 11-6 and with Letran and Baste both breathing down their necks. In other results, the Junior Altas frustrated the Braves, 88-81.

Rondina, Viray power UST to outright finals berth in UAAP beach Volleyball

UNIVERSITY of Santo Tomas' Cherry Rondina and Caitlyn Viray hacked out a 22-20, 17-21, 15-13 win over Far Eastern University's Bernadeth Pons and Kyla Atienza in a back-and-forth clash to claim the outright championship berth in the women's division yesterday in the UAAP Season 80 beach volleyball tournament at the Sands SM By The Bay. With Rondina playing second fiddle in the endgame, Viray scored her team's last three points to send the Tigresses back to the best-of-three title round via a 7-0 elimination round.        The Lady Tamaraws rallied from a 2-6 hole in the deciding set to grab the lead briefly at 8-7 and last took the upperhand at 10-9 on a Viray error. FEU was trailing 10-12 before taking advantage of UST's errors to force the game's last deadlock at 12-12. The Lady Tamaraws wound up second in the elims with a 6-1 card and will hold the twice-to-beat advantage in the second step-ladder semifinals. De La Salle's Tin Tiamzon and May Luna, meanwhile, made quick work of Ateneo's Bea de Leon and Jules Samonte, 21-10, 21-9, to clinch the remaining semis berth and will face Diana Carlos and Ayel Estrañero of University of the Philippines in the first step-ladder.    The Lady Maroons ended up third at 5-2 following a 21-12, 21-18 win over National University's Roma Doromal and Audrey Paran. 'Siyempre mas maganda kung makuha namin ang gold,' said Rondina, who had all praises on her first time partner Viray. 'Kinakailangan pang trabahuin.' The UST-FEU clash featuring two of the best players in the sand court in Rondina and Pons truly lived up to the hype. It was a back-and-forth first frame as the Lady Tamaraws came back from a 7-14 hole to move closer to set point, 20-19, before the Tigresses scored the next three points capped by a Pons net touch to claim the set. UST rallied a 5-10 second set deficit and closed in at 15-16 on Viray's back-to-back kills before FEU displayed tremendous composure to tie the game at one set apiece.  The Lady Spikers finished the elims at 4-3, while the Lady Eagles bowed out with their fifth loss against two wins.  .....»»

Altuve hits 3 homers, Astros beat Red Sox 8-2 in ALDS opener

em>By Kristie Rieken, Associated Press /em> HOUSTON (AP) — Jose Altuve hit three home runs in an unprecedented show of power for the diminutive major league batting champion as the Houston Astros roughed up Chris Sale and the Boston Red Sox 8-2 Thursday in Game 1 of the AL Division Series. Buoyed by chants of 'MVP' in each trip to the plate, the 5-foot-6 Altuve hit solo homers in the first and fifth innings off Sale. He connected again in the seventh off reliever Austin Maddox to give Houston a quick boost in the best-of-five series. It was just the 10th time a player hit three homers in a postseason game, and first since Pablo Sandoval for the Giants in the 2012 World Series opener against Detroit. Babe Ruth did it twice. After Altuve rounded the bases on his third solo homer, which landed on the train tracks atop left field, George Springer grabbed the All-Star second baseman's right biceps and examined it as if searching for an explanation for his out of the ordinary pop. Altuve's teammates then goaded him into exiting the dugout for a curtain call. And as he tipped his hat to the crowd one fan near the dugout held a sign that proclaimed in blue block letters: 'That Kid Can Hit.' 'As soon as I cross the white line, I feel the same size as everyone else,' Altuve said after the win. Justin Verlander pitched six effective innings and improved to 6-0 since Houston got him in late trade with Detroit. Sale, the major league strikeout leader, was tagged for seven runs in five-plus innings of his postseason debut. Game 2 is Friday, with Dallas Keuchel starting for the Astros against Drew Pomeranz. Among the shortest players in the majors, Altuve couldn't be a bigger leader for the Astros. He's one of the few players remaining who languished through a rebuilding process that led to three straight 100-loss seasons from 2011-13, and is perhaps the biggest reason this team ran away with the AL West title this year. Altuve hit .346 this year, his fourth straight 200-hit season. He had 24 home runs this year — this was his third career multihomer game, and the first time he'd hit three all at once. Quite a comeback from his only previous postseason — in 2015, he batted just .154 (4 for 26) without an extra-base hit. Alex Bregman and Altuve hit back-to-back homers in the first inning, making Sale look a bit rattled. The Red Sox tied it up by scoring a run each in the second and fourth innings before Marwin Gonzalez lined a two-run double in the fourth for a 4-2 lead. There were two outs in the fifth inning when Altuve connected again to push the lead to 5-2 and make him the third player in franchise history with a multihomer game in the postseason, joining Carlos Correa and Carlos Beltran. The crowd of 43,402, which included Hall of Famers Nolan Ryan, Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio, waved bright orange towels as Altuve trotted around the bases. Sale never got into a rhythm and was chased after walking Josh Reddick with no outs in the sixth. The left-hander was tagged for nine hits and matched a season high for most runs allowed. After fanning 308 in the regular season, he struck out six. But he allowed three homers and three doubles, marking just the second time in his career that he's given up six extra-base hits. Verlander, a playoff veteran who was starting his 17th postseason game, yielded six hits, struck out three and walked two to help the Astros take the early lead in the series. Sandy Leon had two hits and drove in a run and Rafael Devers added an RBI for the AL East champs. strong>TRAINER'S ROOM /strong> Red Sox designated hitter Eduardo Nunez was carried off the field in the first inning with a right knee injury and did not return. Nunez pulled up running to first base on a groundout in the first inning before falling to the ground. He writhed in pain as manager John Farrell and trainers ran to his aid. He remained on the ground for a couple of minutes before trying to walk off the field with their help. Nunez appeared to be unable to put any weight on his knee. Farrell and another Red Sox employee eventually picked him up and carried him off the field and into the dugout as he winced in pain. Nunez missed 19 of Boston's last 20 regular-season games with what the team called a sore knee, but the club thought he had recovered enough to contribute in the postseason. The Red Sox said he had re-aggravated his knee injury and he was replaced by Hanley Ramirez. strong>UP NEXT /strong> em> strong>Red Sox: /strong> /em> Pomeranz will make his first career postseason start after going 0-0 with a 4.91 ERA in two relief appearances in the playoffs. em> strong>Astros: /strong> /em>Keuchel believes that the experience he got pitching — and winning — two games in the 2015 playoffs will help him in his second trip to the postseason. 'I'm grateful that we got some experience in 2015 and hopefully that will carry us to the championship series,' he said. .....»»

Esvin Inliwan and Errol Bongay combined for 13 points in the decisive final frame all while standing at the forefront of a defense that suffocated their opponents in the same timeframe. Inliwan and Bongay wound up with 17 and 16 points, respectively, while Jielo Razon contributed 14 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and three steals in inarguably their biggest win of the season. The upset improves the Junior Altas’ standing to 5-10, but doesn’t do much in the playoff hunt as they have long been eliminated. Still, they played their part to perfection, ruining the win run of Malayan which now falls to 12-3. Clint Escamis was the lone bright spot for them with 22 points, five rebounds, and four assists. Without the injured Will Gozum, however, they had a hard time stopping the attack fronted by physical players like Inliwan and Bongay.

Bailey gets 1st Bundesliga goal to grab point for Leverkusen

GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany (AP) — Bayer Leverkusen substitute Leon Bailey scored his first Bundesliga goal to earn his team a 1-1 draw at Schalke on Friday. The 20-year-old Jamaican forward, who has also played for Belgian side Genk, came on for the second half and scored with a deflected shot. American teenager Weston McKennie started for Schalke for the third straight game and had the first shot, which went just wide. Schalke's Leon Goretzka had got the breakthrough 10 minutes before halftime. His free kick went over the Leverkusen wall and inside the right corner of the goal from more than 20 meters (yards). Leverkusen's attack improved after coach Heiko Herrlich brought on Bailey and Kai Havertz. Lucas Alario induced a smart save from Schalke's Ralf Faehrmann, who was then powerless to stop Bailey's shot after it took a deflection from defender Matija Nastasic. Bailey almost won the game in injury time, but Faehrmann saved. .....»»

Lady Eagles keep it together despite injuries

Ana Gopico showed up in uniform in Ateneo’s first outing in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference, but couldn’t play yet due to injury sustained much earlier. Then Madelaine Madayag sprained an ankle only to be followed in the injury list by Jhoana Maraguinot. When Madayag and Maraguinot came back, Kim Gequillana crumpled down the floor with a torn left ACL. Through this string of injuries, the Lady Eagles bravely forged ahead, largely because of their indomitable spirit and, in equal measure, the leadership of team captain Bea de Leon. De Leon, who now commands a large following, always has a comforting word for a teammate who commits an error and praises for the team rookies who give a fair accounting of themselves in their few minutes on court. Or a congratulatory pat or hug for one who scores a point. Only Gequillana will be out of commission when the Lady Blue Eagles, sporting a 3-1 win-loss record, play the undefeated National University Lady Bulldogs (4-) Sept. 30 in a game they must win or they go bust. A fourth victory for them would force a triple tie among themselves, the Lady Bulldogs and the Lady Tamaraws (3-1) assuming FEU wins their final assignment as well against lowly Lyceum of the Philippines University (1-3). Playing without the indisposed Madayag and Gopinco and de Leon, who was away at the time in an immersion class in Nueva Ecija, Ateneo lost to FEU in four sets. For a while there, not a few wondered if there’s something wrong with coach Tai’s program that his women keep injuring themselves during training or a game. Sherwin Malonzo, head of Ateneo’s volleyball program, dismissed the insinuation, saying that a player is bound to get injured in a high-level competition such as the PVL and the UAAP. “Injuries will be injuries and can’t be avoided,” he added. strong>The Ateneo Lady Blue Eagles lineup: /strong> Danielle Ravena, Ma.

Squires and Staglets still in a dead heat for fourth spot

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> Malayan 12-2 br /> CSB-LSGH 10-4 br /> San Beda 9-5 br /> Letran 9-6 br /> San Sebastian 8-6 br /> LPU 7-8 br /> Arellano 6-8 br /> Perpetual 4-9 br /> JRU 5-9 br /> EAC 1-14 One team is in and already has twice-to-beat advantage, two teams are knocking on the door of the other playoff incentive, and four teams still have a shot at the fourth and final playoff berth in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Fourth-running Colegio de San Juan de Letran and fifth-running San Sebastian College-Recoletos are still not that far from each other in the playoff race after separate wins on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The Squires were almost at the wrong end of an upset before digging deep and hacking out an 86-85 overtime victory versus Emilio Aguinaldo College. Neil Tolentino scored 15 points and was backstopped by Enoch Valdez who posted 12 points and nine rebounds. It was the backcourt tandem of Russelle Aniban and Keith Peralta, however, who connived for nine points in the extra period to spark the Squires back into the win column. Standing at 9-6, the Intramuros-based squad remains well within the top four and still within striking distance of the top two. Right behind them are the Staglets who continued their stampede with a 101-91 overtime victory versus Lyceum of the Philippines University. Damie Cuntapay posted monster numbers of 26 points and 19 rebounds as Baste won for the sixth time in a row and for the eighth time in 14 games. The win not only moved San Sebastian forward and closer to the top four, it also dragged down the sixth-running Junior Pirates to 7-8. John Barba led them in the losing effort with 27 points. Yesterday, defending champion Malayan High School of Science re-asserted its mastery over upstart contender College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills, 71-62. Carl Lacap and Joaqui Garcia topped the scoring column with 14 and 13, respectively, but it was the Red Robins’ team effort that fueled their ascent to a still league-leading 12-2. Clint Escamis continued to do it all with 11 points, 14 rebounds, and four assists while twin towers Warren Bonifacio and Will Gozum merged for 14 markers and 17 boards. With the elimination round sweep of their closest competitors thus far in the tournament, the defending champions have now clinched twice-to-beat advantage for the next round. On the other hand, the Junior Blazers suffered their second straight setback and now stand at 10-4. They remain at solo second. Hot on their heels is San Beda High School which exacted revenge on Arellano High School with a resounding rout, 94-65. Luke Sese was the high man with 18 points, but all but one of the 14 Red Cubs sent in contributed at least two points in the scoring column. Now at 9-5, third-running San Beda is breathing down the necks of CSB-LSGH for the only playoff incentive left. The outlook is the opposite for the 6-8 Braves who need to win out in their remaining assignments while also hoping the four teams ahead of them take a stumble. In other results, Jose Rizal High School brought a 35-point beatdown to University of Perpetual Help, 86-51.

Falcons hold on to beat Lions 30-26 thanks to NFL rule

DETROIT (AP) — Matthew Stafford's pass to Golden Tate was ruled to be just short of the goal line in the final seconds, overturning the call on the field and allowing the Atlanta Falcons to hold on for a 30-26 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Stafford threw a slant to Tate and a video review determined he was down just inside the 1 with 8 seconds left. By rule, 10 seconds had to run off the clock, and that ended the game because the Lions didn't have any timeouts. Former NFL officiating chief Dean Blandino, now a Fox analyst, explained the call in a tweet: 'To recap in DET: ruling on the field was a TD which stops the clock. After review, Tate was short which would have kept the clock running ... This carries a 10-sec runoff. Had the call on the field been correct initially, the clock would have run out. That's the spirit of the rule.' The defending NFC champion Falcons (3-0) overcame Matt Ryan's three interceptions and many other mistakes, including on Detroit's last drive. Detroit (2-1) never led in the game and failed to pull off another comeback in the fourth quarter. strong>EAGLES 27, GIANTS 24 /strong> PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jake Elliott kicked a 61-yard field goal as the clock expired. Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, including a 77-yard score to Sterling Shepard, but Philadelphia (2-1) rallied twice. Carson Wentz tossed a 19-yard pass to Alshon Jeffery to set up Elliott's kick. The rookie was a fifth-round pick by the Bengals and joined the Eagles after Caleb Sturgis was injured in Week 1. He was carried off the field by two teammates. Elliott hit a 46-yard field goal to tie it with 51 seconds left after Aldrick Rosas kicked a 41-yarder to put the Giants ahead. The Giants (0-3) hadn't scored 20 points in eight straight games before Manning led them to 21 in a span of 5:21. He tossed TD passes of 10 yards and 4 yards to Odell Beckham Jr. to tie it at 14. Manning then connected over the middle to Shepard, who broke a couple tackles and sprinted all the way for a 21-14 lead. But Philadelphia (2-1) answered quickly. A 36-yard penalty for pass interference on Eli Apple put the ball at the 15 and rookie Corey Clement ran in on the next play for his first career TD to make it 21-21. strong>PATRIOTS 36, TEXANS 33 /strong> FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady connected with Brandin Cooks for a 25-yard touchdown pass with 23 seconds left, his fifth TD throw of the game. Brady finished 25 of 35 for 378 yards as New England (2-1) won its fifth straight regular-season meeting with Houston (1-2) and seventh of eight overall. Cooks caught five passes for 131 yards and pair of scores. It was the fifth multi-touchdown game and eighth 100-yard game of his career. Texans rookie Deshaun Watson was strong in his second career start. The Patriots were thin on the edge without linebacker Dont'a Hightower for the second straight week, and Watson took advantage, completing 22 of 33 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns. But he did have two interceptions, including one that set up a New England first-half touchdown. The Patriots extended their halftime lead to 28-20 in the third quarter before Houston used a 12-yard TD pass from Watson to Ryan Griffin, and a 31-yard Ka'imi Fairbairn field goal to edge back in front 30-28 early in the fourth quarter. The Texans forced New England to punt with just over seven minutes to play, but had to settle for a 36-yard Fairbairn field goal with 2:24 left. Houston failed on a third-and-1 at the Patriots 18. That left Brady room. strong>BEARS 23, STEELERS 17, OT /strong> CHICAGO (AP) — Jordan Howard scored on a 19-yard run in overtime to lead the Bears. Howard's winning score came two plays after rookie Tarik Cohen broke off an electric run for what appeared to be a 73-yard winning touchdown. But he was ruled out at the Pittsburgh 37. Howard took over from there, and the Bears (1-2) came away with a surprising victory. Howard had 138 of Chicago's 220 yards rushing, making up for a lackluster performance by quarterback Mike Glennon. The Steelers (2-1) stayed off the sideline for the national anthem in the wake of President Donald Trump's comments that players who kneel in protest should be fired. Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, an Army veteran, stood near the tunnel with his hand over his heart. Once the game ended, they found themselves in a familiar spot — losing to a lesser team and losing in Chicago, where they are 1-13. Marcus Cooper committed an inexplicable fumble after the Bears blocked a field goal in the closing seconds of the half. With a clear path to the end zone, he slowed down and had the ball poked away at the 1. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 235 yards and a touchdown. Antonio Brown had 110 yards receiving and a touchdown. strong>BILLS 26, BRONCOS 16 /strong> ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Tyrod Taylor threw two touchdowns and the Bills intercepted Trevor Siemian twice in the final 19 minutes. Taylor went 20 of 26 for 213 yards with a 2-yard touchdown to Andre Holmes and a 6-yarder to Charles Clay. Taylor got lucky on the touchdown pass to Holmes , as the ball deflected off the hands of Zay Jones just inside the goal line and bounced directly to Holmes in the back of the end zone. The Bills (2-1) overcame their struggling running attack courtesy of Taylor's arm and a stout defense in a game LeSean McCoy was limited to 21 yards on 14 carries. Though he had seven catches for 48 yards, McCoy's latest poor outing came after he was limited to 9 yards rushing in a 9-3 loss at Carolina. The Bills allowed just one touchdown, while Brandon McManus rounded out Denver's scoring with three field goals. In falling to 2-1, the Broncos turned over the ball on each of their final four possessions, with Siemian being intercepted by E.J. Gaines and Tre'Davious White. The Broncos also turned the ball over twice on downs. strong>JETS 20, DOLPHINS 6 /strong> EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Josh McCown threw a 69-yard touchdown pass to Robby Anderson, Bilal Powell ran for a score, and the Jets' defense dominated Jay Cutler and the Dolphins. While a lot of the focus heading into the season was on whether the revamped Jets roster would be good enough to win any games, New York made Miami look like the team in the middle of a rebuild. McCown finished 18 of 23 for 249 yards, Chandler Catanzaro kicked two field goals, and the Jets (1-2) forced Cutler and the Dolphins (1-1) into mistakes all game. The Jets also avoided their first 0-3 start since 2003. New York just missed having its first shutout since blanking Cincinnati 37-0 on Jan. 13, 2010 — in the Jets' last game at the old Giants Stadium. Cutler threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to DeVante Parker on the final play. Cody Parkey missed the extra point, capping a miserable day for Miami in 88-degree heat at MetLife Stadium. strong>JAGUARS 44, RAVENS 7 /strong> LONDON (AP) — Marcedes Lewis caught three of Blake Bortles' four touchdown passes as the Jaguars won in their fifth game in Britain's capital. Allen Hurns and Leonard Fournette also scored touchdowns for the Jaguars (2-1), who have won each of their last three games played at the venue. This one, by far, was the easiest. The Ravens (2-1) managed just 186 yards of total offense, including minus-1 yard in the first quarter. They managed 15 yards in the first half, and picked up only 12 first downs. A 6-yard pass from Ryan Mallett, who entered in relief of Joe Flacco in the fourth quarter, to Benjamin Watson with 3:24 remaining prevented the shutout. It was their worst defeat since Nov. 9, 1997, when they lost 37-0 at Pittsburgh. Baltimore crossed midfield three times — and not until the third quarter, when Terrance West gained 7 yards to reach the Jaguars 45. On the next play, West failed to secure a handoff and fumbled, leading to linebacker Telvin Smith returning it 52 yards to set up Lewis' third touchdown. Jacksonville punctuated the victory with a fake punt minutes later, with Corey Grant taking a direct snap 58 yards before Fournette punched the ball in from the 3. strong>VIKINGS 34, BUCCANEERS 17 /strong> MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Case Keenum gave Minnesota a brilliant performance in relief of Sam Bradford, passing for three touchdowns and a career-high 369 yards without a turnover. Stefon Diggs had 173 yards receiving and caught two of Keenum's throws for scores, one short and one long . Dalvin Cook produced 169 total yards plus his first NFL touchdown , which capped a 75-yard drive by the Vikings (2-1) to start the game. They never slowed down, building a 28-3 lead by early in the third quarter on their way to compiling 494 yards. Trae Waynes and Harrison Smith each picked off Jameis Winston in the end zone , and Andrew Sendejo returned an interception 36 yards in the fourth quarter to set up one of two field goals by Kai Forbath. Winston completed 28 of 40 passes for 328 yards, but the Buccaneers (1-1) simply couldn't overcome having to play from behind all afternoon. They converted only one of six third downs. strong>COLTS 31, BROWNS 28 /strong> INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Jacoby Brissett ran for two touchdowns, threw for another and the Colts held off Cleveland's late charge. Brissett, acquired in a trade with New England earlier this month, looked much more comfortable in his second start, going 17 of 24 with 259 yards and running five times for 14 yards. Indy (1-2) avoided its first 0-3 start in six years. Cleveland (0-3) lost its 15th consecutive road game despite being favored for the first time since 2015 and a road favorite for the first time since 2012. Brissett was the primary reason for the Browns' latest loss. He started the scoring with a 5-yard TD run, broke a 7-7 tie by spinning away from pressure and scooting 7 yards for his second score, then hooked up with T.Y. Hilton on a 61-yard TD pass to make it 21-7 — all in the first half. Frank Gore's 4-yard scoring run made it 28-7. Cleveland spent the rest of the game playing catch-up, but had two second-half scoring chances snuffed out by Rashaan Melvin's interceptions. strong>SAINTS 34, PANTHERS 13 /strong> CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Drew Brees shredded the league's top-ranked defense, throwing for three touchdowns and 220 yards. Brees led six scoring drives and threw TD passes to Michael Thomas, Brandon Coleman and ex-Panthers wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. as the Saints avoided an 0-3 start. Rookie Alvin Kamara put the game away with a 25-yard TD run with 4:42 left. Carolina (2-1) had allowed six points in its previous two games. The Saints' defense, which came in ranked 32nd in the league, intercepted Cam Newton three times and sacked him four times before he was replaced late in the fourth quarter. Many of Newton's throws were either too hard or high as the seventh-year quarterback continued to struggle with his rhythm following offseason shoulder surgery. The Panthers, who were already without injured Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen, lost wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin in the first quarter to a knee injury; his leg got bent back awkwardly after being dragged down from behind. Carolina's only real offense came from rookie running back Christian McCaffrey, who had 101 yards receiving on nine catches. strong>PACKERS 27, BENGALS 24 /strong> GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (AP) — Mason Crosby kicked a 27-yard field goal with 6:26 left in overtime set up by Aaron Rodgers' 72-yard pass to Geronimo Allison. Crosby's kick completed the Packers' comeback from a 21-7 halftime deficit. On third-and-10 from his 21, Rodgers took advantage of yet another free play after defensive end Michael Johnson was whistled for offside. Officials let the play continue and the two-time NFL MVP found Allison on about a 40-yard pass before the receiver beat a couple defenders for more yards. Crosby took care of the rest for the Packers (2-1). The winless Bengals (0-3) won the toss in overtime but went three-and-out on their opening drive. It was so loud at Lambeau Field that they had to call timeout before their first overtime snap. Rodgers thrived under the pressure. Rodgers finished 28 of 42 for 313 yards with three touchdowns and one score. Allison had six catches for 122 yards. strong>CHIEFS 24, CHARGERS 10 /strong> CARSON, California (AP) — Alex Smith threw two touchdown passes in the first 9 ½ minutes against what used to be his hometown team, Terrance Mitchell had two interceptions and rookie Kareem Hunt scored on a 69-yard run. The Chiefs (3-0) beat the Chargers for the seventh straight time and have won 12 straight AFC West games. Los Angeles' Philip Rivers threw three interceptions and the Chargers fell to 0-3 in their first season playing in the 27,000-seat StubHub Center after moving from San Diego. After a quick start, the Chiefs held on through a defensive struggle in the second half. They got two huge plays in the closing minutes: Justin Houston's sack of Rivers and then Hunt's sensational run when he cut back against the flow and raced 69 yards down the left sideline with 1:49 left. The rookie finished with 172 yards on 17 carries. The game couldn't have started more differently for Smith, who grew up in the San Diego area, and Rivers. Rivers was intercepted by Mitchell on the game's third play from scrimmage. Four plays later, Smith hit Tyreek Hill on a 30-yard touchdown pass. strong>TITANS 33, SEAHAWKS 27 /strong> NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) — Marcus Mariota threw for 225 yards and two touchdowns as the Titans scored 21 straight points in rallying to beat the Seahawks. Pro Bowl running back DeMarco Murray rushed for 115 yards, including a 75-yard TD run. Ryan Succop also kicked four field goals as Tennessee (2-1) scored at least 30 points for a second straight week. The Seahawks (1-2) finally scored a bunch of touchdowns with Russell Wilson throwing for 373 yards and four TDs. His second TD, a 10-yarder to Chris Carson , put Seattle up 14-9 in the third quarter. Then the Titans took control with Mariota answering with TDs on the next two drives for Tennessee. Wilson pulled Seattle within 33-27 with his fourth TD, an 8-yarder to Paul Richardson with 1:50 left. But Titans tight end Delanie Walker recovered Seattle's onside kick. The Seahawks had one last chance with the Titans lined up to punt on fourth-and-3 with 11 seconds left. Then officials flagged the Seahawks for 12 men in the formation, giving Tennessee the clinching first down. strong>REDSKINS 27, RAIDERS 10 /strong> LANDOVER, Maryland (AP) — Kirk Cousins threw for 365 yards and three touchdowns and Chris Thompson had 188 all-purpose yards and a score as Washington sacked Derek Carr four times and held Oakland to 128 yards in a dominating victory. Cousins was a spectacular 25 of 30, including TD passes to Thompson, Vernon Davis and a 52-yarder to Josh Doctson. Thompson had 150 yards receiving and 38 yards rushing, joining Jamaal Charles as the only running backs to put up 150 yards receiving against the Raiders (2-1) since they moved to Oakland in 1995. Thompson was again a difference maker and has four of Washington's seven offensive touchdowns this season. The Redskins (2-1), who piled up 472 yards, improved to 4-6 in prime-time games under coach Jay Gruden and tied the Philadelphia Eagles for first place in the NFC East. Under pressure all night, Carr was 19 of 31 for 118 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Carr had thrown 112 consecutive passes before being picked off by Montae Nicholson on the second play of the game.   .....»»

We're very happy and proud of Cassie and Dani -- BDL on Ateneo rookies

Team captain Bea De Leon was glad to see Ateneo de Manila University rookies Dani Ravena and Candice Gequillana getting some playing time. She lauded the newcomers performance – though short – in the Lady Eagles 25-11, 25-13, 25-13, whipping of San Sebastian College on Saturday in Group A of the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.     Ravena and Gequillana saw action for the first time after riding the bench in the Katipunan-based squad’s first three outings. “It's very motivating for them to get a chance to play. When you're at that age, you're very eager,” said fourth year player De Leon. “So I'm sure they're very happy and we're very happy and proud of Cassie and Dani,” added De Leon. Open spiker Gequillana, younger sister of injured Kim Gequillana (left ACL tear) played in the third set in a relief role and scored two points as the Lady Eagles improved to 3-1 win-loss record. Ravena served as substitute for starting setter Deanna Wong in the third frame. Both players came in late in the third with Ateneo miles ahead, 17-7. “Una, before pumasok kinakabahan ako, inisip ko na lang na relax lang and just do my best,” said Ravena. “Iniisip ko lang ang team kung paano ako makaka-contribute. I don’t think of those factors na, like 'yung mga fans, kahit naman maganda ang nilaro may masasabi sila. Maka-help lang aka sa team, that’s enough for me na.” The victory pushed the Lady Eagles closer to a Final Four spot and gave them a good momentum heading into their last elims assignment against unbeaten National University next Saturday.     ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»
